    I'm in favor of that, and would like it to be a build option. I do understand
    that some applications might user executable stack in a valid manner, (things
    like matlab?) but most systems would be more secure if the stack were not
    executable. Especially routers, firewalls, and dedicated file/print servers.

    Where is that patch (pretty please...:)?
